11:01pm
her paralyzed. >> it was totally unexpected. you come to the hospital for help or whatever and find out somebody is in there shooting. it totally puts you -- makes you think what is really going on. >> the hospital staff says pardus was known to him as warren davis. he lived with his mother where neighbors say he was a loving son whose life revolved around his mother's care. that's where gary nurenberg picks up the story and joins us live. >> reporter: this has become a sea of disbelief how neighbors wonder why a man so clearly close to his mother took his life. >> i can't believe it. >> reporter: she lives next to. he used the mother's last name at time and was known as warren davis. >> he was always there for her. if she had to go in an ambulance or anything, he rode with her. he never left her side. and i told her when she was
11:02pm
walking out, she had a great son. this is just hard to believe. it's really hard. >> reporter: neighbors say he kept to himself but saw him now and then at church services just up the street. in her illness, he tried to give his mother a good quality of life. >> he had called about two months ago and wanted to know if i knew an address that would come because she wasn't able to come out but he wanted somebody to come to the house. so that was the kind of person he was. he didn't seem to know a lot of the neighbors. but he didn't bother anybody and he worked every day and just seemed like a decent person who was trying to deal with his mother. >> reporter: neighbors helped. she sometimes became confused wandering the streets in heavy winter clothes on hot summer days until neighbors would walk her home. >> he was a really gentle person. he tried to take care of her, you know. he didn't really try -- he wasn't a mean person at all. not from what i seen from him at least, you know. he was a gentle soul. but i really -- i mean, i don't
11:03pm
believe it. it's hard to believe. >> reporter: he gave her as much time as he could neighbors say but had to work during the day as a metro access driver and asked neighbors to keep an eye on his mom. we asked the neighbors what is the one thing we should tell our viewers about them. the one answer we got repeatedly tell them that he really loved his mom. derek and anita. a teenager is dead after a shooting. police found the boy just before 7:00 right near the prince george's and montgomery county line. emergency crews took him to the hospital where he later died. right now officers are looking for at least two suspects in this. no word yet on what sparked the deadly shooting. we all know traffic around here can be a headache. but can you imagine tacking on another two hours to your commute? well, that is what some are saying will happen around i395 when a brand new defense building opens its doors. tonight dozens came out to talk
11:04pm
about the potential traffic disaster and our own brittany morehouse was there who joins us live now from alexandria. brittany. >> reporter: well, that meeting was held at a military school -- at a middle school right off seminary road. and that defense building it's required by law, passed by congress in 2005, so it has to be built. where it was going to be built, that was under question. they looked at several spots. they looked even at delmar. this spot fit the requirement. when he said that, everyone in the room just laughed. >> to put it in anyway to this situation is an insult to intelligence. >> reporter: and that is just speaker one standing in a group of people. this is a military building at the marxen ter in alexandria. it will -- marks center in
11:05pm
alexandria. many people in this room are asking what will it do to our traffic? >> that is a huge, huge problem. because there is really no easy way to get in there. >> reporter: tonight's public hearing held by congressman gen moran allowed people to ask questions. >> have those who participated in passing it been removed from this project? by now the building is one year away from completion. >> i see some folks over here with save the preserve, and i would just like to. [ cheers and applause ]. >> reporter: most notably the botanical preserve that would be ruined by a proposed ramp. >> right now they're saying it's off the table. and that's good to hear that. >> reporter: so why then are people still so upset? >> because they don't believe that the transportation alternatives will really address
11:06pm
the congestion. i think that there has been a kind of a history of wondering whether or not we can trust or believe what has been sort of promised. >> reporter: i'll tell you what is promised. they did say that they will reduce the number of parking spots at the defense building from 4,000 to 1,000. hopefully deterring people from taking their cars, taking public transportation and alleviating some of that traffic on 395. reporting live in alexandria, brittany morehouse, 9news now. we have got some severe thunderstorms on the way. chief meteorologist topper shutt is in the 9 forecast first weather center. top. >> you know, it's kind of a counterintuitive attempts have been posted for frederick county and maryland and in virginia. the panhandle of west virginia. in hagerstown, pretty good thunderstorm now. around 81 between hagerstown and williamsport. everything is pushing off now to the north and east headed
11:07pm
towards smithburg. i think in the immediate metro area we're good for a couple of hours. we'll come back and talk about where the storms are going to head. we'll have your wakeup ether shortly. back to you. so what happened behind the wheel? that is the question police in district heights are happening after a crash left three people dead and an ambulance split apart. >> i'm shocked. he's not supposed to be dead right now. he's really not. >> the violent wrecked happened in the 5600-block of marlboro pike earlier this morning. emmanuel jones was the driver that hit the ambulance. the suv only came to a stop after it hit a brick wall. >> that vehicle traveling that excessive rate of speed was on top of them. >> jones was traveling with his cousin, 22-year-old andre watley and friend tony burney. all three men were killed. the men in the ambulance were not hurt. no patients were being transported at the time of the wreck. police are still investigating
11:08pm
whether alcohol or speed played a factor in this violent crash. tonight a major development in that series of off-campus armed robberies right near the university of maryland. police arrested 19-year-old turner jau of silver spring after they say he used a credit card stole in one of the crimes. you can see him on this surveillance camera footage using one of those cards inside a convenience store. they turned up even more evidence when they searched his home. the students are relieved. they say the crimes had escalated since they started heading back to school. >> it is a relieve that the thieves are getting caught and the police are doing their jobs. that makes the whole campus safer. >> i just hope it doesn't happen to me. that's pretty much all i can say. >> i guess we can understand that. he has now been charged with armed street robbery. he's been held without bail while police look for other suspects. so, have you ever been tempted to want to make a copy of one of the new blu-ray dvd.
11:09pm
you can't because there is a code that prevents it from being copied. >> that has been hacked. we'll tell you what that means for the movie industry and move re lovers. >> reporter: we searched the webs and within seconds we got our hands on the code. it looks like gibberish. it has cryptic instructions. but to the right person. >> it is the key to the kingdom. >> reporter: it's a cyber security expert that say programmers could create hardware anyone can use to copy blu-rays. >> it just might be as easy as using dvr. they will rip the blu-ray and file sharing site and then tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people will download or extremely stream that content. >> reporter: patrick roth at the copyright alliance says when people start making copies of blu-rays, it will devastate the movie industry. >> pension funds, health care funds for the carpenters, for the makeup artists, for the cost assume workers. all of those are funded by dfrd sales. >> reporter: it's i will he
11:10pm
will -- dvd sales. >> reporter: it's illegal to make copies but some might risk the consequences. >> i can take the movie i'm watching. i can record if from my ipod and laptop. >> reporter: the industry is already sensing format frustrations and offering a solution. >> i buy the three pack. a dvd, blu-ray and a code. >> reporter: is that indeed the correct code? >> it is. >> reporter: intel is the company that created the code to protect blu-rays. >> they would have to use the code to manufacture a computer chip and build that into some kind of a box or a device. and that would be a very difficult and very costly. >> reporter: but he says if someone used the code to offer movies for free, they'll take legal action. in washington, i'm lindsey mastis, 9news now. >> now, according to a study by the institute for policy inno
11:11pm

11:25pm
redskins game. again, it's not our call and hopefully it won't happen at all. we're waiting to see the capitals back on the ice since their stunning first loss against the canadiens. they are ready to erase some bad memories. >> it still stinks. we try to use that as a motivating factor and come back to camp with a level of intensity. >> it was a long summer for us. little too long. and i know as far as myself and a lot of the other guys, we're ready to get going this year. >> good to have the capitals back. and with that we bring you the latest installment of the excellent and not so excellent in the world of sports. it is the good, the bad and the ugly for september 15th. we start with the good. best snag by a first baseman. look at the padres on adrian gonzalez here. he goes between the legs. >> whoa. >> now, i'm not sure why he
11:26pm
didn't back hand that ball. >> right. >> the regular way. >> show it off. >> it worked. >> it wouldn't make news if he did it the regular way. this spin. the penalty kick initially saved. look at the ball. it has some english on it. the goalie is not paying attention and it spins over the line. >> oh, look at that. >> look at the forward. he says that ought to count and he says you bet it does. that's a goal. best thief re. scott podsednik went down there. some fan switched caps with him. they're sneaky out in southern california. you have to watch them guys. let's go to the bad. the finish had given us a lot of good things in the goal celebrating department. this one is no good, though. it's a lady gaga routine. one buy puts up the blond wig. >> oh, no. >> not even close to as good as the flopping fish.
11:27pm
>> no. >> which was also from finland. try again. >> that was weak. >> worst touch around the green. charlie at the bmw. he wants to get out. he does. but not so much. i would say, topper, he did not materially improve his lies. >> he nailed it. >> wait a second. >> he flushed it. >> it's congressional. >> i know. he's a pro, though. here is the ugly. worst advertisement. the guys at polo ralph lauren who paid a lot of money until that guy tripped over that because he's not a polo man. finally worst experience sitting in the front row. this guy in toronto who wound up with the ball in his nose. >> oh. >> and he was on a date. and unfortunately it didn't end the way he hoped it would end. >> he's laughing. >> not when the date is laughing at you. >> ouch.
